Red Willow, you are a star indeed!

A 1-page printout of man shutdown and a quick practice led to:

Code:
Code:
# shutdown -P now


led to a quick and total switch off, with full powerdown.

Exactly what I wanted. Note the root permission.

Thank you so much to all who offered help.

Mark this as SOLVED!

Best
